IT service management specialist FrontRange has promoted Steve Lindeman to the newly created position of Chief Customer Officer (CCO).
By the end of last year Australia had around 700 too many ICT managers, and 2,700 too few ICT professionals. It's the classic case of too many chiefs and not enough Indians.
Jittery business sentiment is leading to an increase in demand for contract IT staff, as companies continue to shy away from increasing their permanent headcount, prompting 'ridiculous' fee spikes of up to 30 per cent in some areas of the IT skills market.
The long anticipated IT skills shortage has re-emerged with a shortfall of 2,800 people recorded in the September Clarius Skills Index and signs that salaries have started to rise - in some cases by up to 20 per cent.
Clarius Group has appointed Linda Trevor as the new Executive General Manager of Candle ICT, the technology arm of the listed recruitment firm. Ms Trevor takes up the position formerly held by David Stewart, who unexpectedly left Candle in February after just 18 months in the role.
The musical chairs playing out in the IT recruitment game continue with former Candle CEO David Stewart reappearing at Clicks IT Recruitment and Peter Acheson being named CEO of Peoplebank Australia.
After being hung out to dry by the GFC triggered downturn, demand for IT skills is on the march, and with NBN Co predicted to enter the recruitment market in earnest from May, salaries are tipped to rise too.
